Color Club Glitter Vixen for Fall 2008

color club, glitter vixen, fall 2008, nail polish, nail lacquer, nail color, nail colour, manicure, pedicureGlitter me timbers! Color Club is going glam rock blingtastic for Fall. One of the two new collections from Color Club, Glitter Vixen’s glitz factor is no joke. Consisting of seven clear nail polishes packed to the hilt with glitter, these lacquers are not for the faint of heart.

Now you kids know I loves me some outrageous and sparkly nail colors but these are a bit much. Don’t get me wrong, they’re totally fun and for a special occasion I’ll be rocking the green (that’s a no brainer), blue and holo but the formula is what’s putting me off.

We all know that glitter polishes are a pain. They dry bumpy and are a b*tch to remove but these ones take the cake for me. Usually in a glitter polish, the base is pigmented so it doesn’t have to be as glitter packed but these are allllllll glittah! It took two coats of Seche Vite to get the surface smooth and removing the green was such a PITA (even using felt instead of cotton rounds) that I used a nail wheel for the rest of the swatches. The scratching was just too hard on my nails, sorry girls. So I’m showing the collection in both sunlight and artificial light on fake tips. All swatches use three coats of polish (two on my nails) and no top coat. Enjoy!

    No such thing as too blingy : ))) Shame they’re PITA to remove.. on the other hand, glitter polishes are often a disappointment, cos they’re not intense enough.. not a problem with these, i guess.. just ordered a few myself, can’t wait.

  2. jaimehwkns says:

    Hmmm…I’m not really a fan! They look…what’s the word…crusty? I like the Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen much better! :)

  3. BeautyChick101 says:

    Those colors are insane! I can tell they’d be so hard to take off. But they’re definitely so great for big nights out!

  4. Davina says:

    Wow, they look bumpy as hell, I know if I had that polish on I’d be picking at it all day lol

  5. Anonymous says:

    I think I’ll pass on these. Just the thought of trying to remove them is making my skin crawl. Nice colors though.

  6. "Hailey" @CasualLavish.com says:

    Glad I didn’t buy before seeing these. I almost did yesterday. A bit chunky looking for me.
    Thanks Cincy for the pics!

  7. Princess Malphaba says:

    Whoa, those are intense. Very pretty but they do look like quite the challenge

    but for the price, it’d be worth it just to use once in awhile!!!So glam!

  8. Karman says:

    Very nice glitter colours but they’re a bit too much for me…I could only imagine what a nightmare it was to remove them!

  9. newsystyle says:

    Those look … wrong. Just too rough and bumpy looking. I’ll pass.

  10. Jennifer Mayer says:

    Fun but I don’t even much like removing regular polishes with glitter…I may pick one up just for fun if I think of it, but they certainly wouldn’t fit my everyday life.

  11. Azucar says:

    Uf, they aren’t too fun looking except in sunlight. Snap, I hate removing Lubu Heels or Pink-Rox-E, never mind these polishes.

  12. Anonymous says:

    Not for me. AT ALL.

  13. Diana says:

    I love sparkly polish, but too much glitter makes nails look like bad grade school crafts projects, IMO! And these are just too much.

  14. Anonymous says:

    hmm it would look okay with a basic black dress

  15. carakitty@mua says:

    I agree with the others: too much (fill in blank). Especially the “makes nails look like bad grade school crafts projects” comment LOL! Michelle, Your swatches are an invaluable resource to the nailie community and I’m pleased as punch they are saving me money by convincing me not to buy from this bunch!

  16. Lina-Elvira says:

    Reminds me of the time I decided to mix clear varnish and glitter pigment from a craft store. OMG. It was EVERYWHERE… I cringe at the memory. No, I will pass on these and keep wearing ChG fall collection a bit longer :)

  17. Original_Wacky says:

    I can’t turn my back on these no matter what… I’m ordering them all, and we’ll see how they wear on me. I seem have to have some strange magic for making glitter work smoothly on me, so I’m curious to see how I do with these! Heck, if they are too bumpy etc, then I can franken with them!

  18. Tiffi33 says:

    I like these!!
    I hate removing glitter, like everyone else..
    But, I am sure w/ some Seche top coat…they would look awesome w. the right outfit

  19. The Home Spa Goddess says:

    I am crazy for glitter. I will be on the lookout for these

  20. Anonymous says:

    Have you tried them with a top coat? I’m curious because I don’t think I could handle the texture without one. I would be worried about snagging delicate fabrics. I love the green though!

    In a word: horrible. But oddly enough Michelle, you pull off the green! That is the only one that would be a cute novelty for St patty’s day but otherwise, ick. They look bumpy and like a kindergarten project. Miss.

  22. ocelot1 says:

    they r blingey…but at the same ti e theyre not…in the sun they look awesome-but in reg light they look kinda dull.maybe cuz they r so dense? this dullness kills the lemm for me-and the PITA-ness to remove…

  23. CincyFan says:

    Mizz X – if you can deal with the removal, I’m sure you’ll love them. They’re definitely intense

    JamieHwkns – I’m loving the SH colors

    BeautyChick101 – I’m with ya. On a night out, for sure. For day, not so much.

    Davina – I’m terrible with picking at things. It’s a nervous habit of mine.

    Anon #1 – I get chills just thinking about scratchy things like wool so removing these gave me goosebumps.

    Hailey – Glad I could help

    P. Malphaba – I agree, for that price it doesn’t hurt to try them.

    Karman – A lot of people rely on felt from a craft store for removing glitter polishes. It does help but it’s not magic.

  24. CincyFan says:

    Newsy – They look fun, with enough top coat. I showed them without so everyone could see the true texture.

    Jennifer Mayer – Hey, can you let us know where you found the SH Tracy Reese polishes? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Azucar – you have problems removing Pink Rox-e? But that’s like the best polish formula ever. The glass flecked China Glazes are coveted. I’m sorry you have trouble removing them.

    Anon #2 – Wearing that kind of glitter certainly isn’t for everyone. But I’ll totally rock the green during the holidays. I’ll probably layer it.

    Diana – I have a feeling you’ll love the holiday sparklers from China Glaze they didn’t have the same removal issue.

    Anon #3 – Agreed! Everything else would have to be pretty subdued unless you just want to go entirely over the top and take it all to extremes.

  25. CincyFan says:

    Carakitty – that is so flattering, thank you. i’m happy to help.

    Lina-Elvira – I tried mixing craft glitter in polish once and it turned brown after a while. So not pretty.

    Wacky – good luck to you. I’m sure you’ll franken something fantastic.

    Tiffi33 – You’re gonna need two coats of Seche Vite. With just one the surface still had texture

    Home Spa Goddess – Enjoy!

    Anon #4/Diana – I did try a top coat, I just didn’t photograph them that way. I used one coat of Seche Vite and could still feel the grittiness. With two coats they were smooth.

    Anon #5 – Thanks! I’m with you, the green will be fun for holidays like St. Patty’s day. I’d consider it for a pedi but I may lose my mind removing it and I wouldn’t put a nail tech through that.

    Ocelot – I think they lose something in bright indoor light. In incandescent light and the sun, the sparkle really comes through.

  26. Dr. Mark says:

    they are pretty but way to much work for me. the green looks good on you!

  27. eye4style says:

    I think these look a little “stripper”

  28. Elle* says:

    I like ‘em!!!

  29. Lydia says:

    I think this is to blingy! Maybe it would work if I were a little bit younger or for on the weekend… but I would just feel funny wearing this at work!

  30. Holly says:

    That looks awesome, I would totally wear it–especially in the green!

  31. Anonymous says:

    The thought of removing these is right up there with chewing wool for *shudder* factor. As much fun as glitter polishes can look, the texture and horror of removing them would be the death of me :/

  32. juvenescent says:

    That’s way too much foolishness.

  33. Jenn says:

    i saw these today in storess… seems like a very cheap low quility brand… i didnt buy any.
